Within the last year, we’ve witnessed a growing demand for body sculpting/contouring with skin tightening, as well as facial and neck skin tightening for areas like under the eyes. If you’re considering these procedures, here’s some helpful information:
- The BTL Exilis Ultra 360 procedure is an effective, non-invasive and non-surgical laser skin tightening and contouring treatment with no social downtime. This is the only body-sculpting technology that combines the power of radio frequency and ultrasound to contour problem areas on the body while simultaneously tightening the skin to enhance collagen and elastin production. For the face, we use only the skin-tightening hand piece, as we do not want to lose the plumpness in our face and neck region.Typical patients are those living a fairly healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise who have problem areas like the abdomen, thighs, bra bulge or arms. Any area you can think of on the skin, this laser works. The treatments do not involve hooking clients up to a machine and leaving them. I manually do the work to ensure we are treating the areas of concern and helping to sculpt them appropriately.
- BTL Exilis Ultra 360 treatment results last as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Gaining excessive weight will counteract the effects.
For optimal results with these procedures, be sure to follow these guidelines:
For body sculpting and skin-tightening lasers, consume extra water a few days before and after treatments.
Exercise, especially after treatments, is highly recommended, as it helps break up the fat cells and aids the body in getting rid of those unwanted cells.
